Multicenter Evaluation of HemoTypeSC as a Point-of-Care Sickle Cell Disease Rapid Diagnostic Test for Newborns and Adults Across India.

Sickle cell anemia is the commonest genetic disorder in India, and the frequency of the sickle cell gene is very high in the remote tribal areas where facilities are generally limited. Therefore, a rapid and affordable point-of-care test for sickle cell disease is needed.

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy in sickle cell disease: where are we now?

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common monogenic disorder that is characterized by an A to T substitution in the β-globin gene that leads to the production of hemoglobin S (HbS). Polymerization of HbS leads to significant morbidity including vaso-occlusion, pain, hemolytic anemia, and end organ damage. Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is the only curative treatment; however, suitable donors are not always readily available. This study reviews the current status of allo-HCT and autolo...

Generation and characterization of induced pluripotent stem cell line (IGIBi001-A) from a sickle cell anemia patient with homozygous β-globin mutation.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by a mutation in β-globin (HBB) gene. We have generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, IGIBi001-A from an Indian sickle cell patient with a homozygous HBB gene mutation using Sendai virus reprogramming system. Characterization of IGIBi001-A showed that these iPSCs are transgene-free and expressed pluripotent stem cell markers. They had a normal karyotype and were able to differentiate into all three germ layers. This new SCD...

A Review of Automated Methods for the Detection of Sickle Cell Disease.

Detection of sickle cell disease is a crucial job in Medical Image Analysis. It emphasizes elaborate analysis of proper disease diagnosis after accurate detection followed by a classification of irregularities, which plays a vital role in the sickle Cell disease diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment outcome evaluation. Proper segmentation of complex cell clusters makes sickle cell detection more accurate and robust. Cell morphology has a key role in the detection of the sickle cell because the shapes...

It is widely distributed due to several micro organisms that target macrophages in different populations. Theoretically, confers an advantage to sickle cell disease patients. The chronic inflammatory response is the main pathogenes...

Prevalence and factors associated with renal dysfunction among children with sickle cell disease attending the sickle cell disease clinic at a tertiary hospital in Northwestern Tanzania.

Little is known on how the interaction between Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and renal insults caused by other coexisting conditions in Sub Saharan Africa such as urinary schistosomiasis, malnutrition and HIV affect the prevalence of renal dysfunction in children with SCD.

Epidemiological, clinical, and severity characterization of sickle cell disease in a population from the Brazilian Amazon.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a chronic inflammatory condition caused by a point mutation in the HBB gene. Here we characterized the clinical presentation of SCD in a population from Amazonas State in northern Brazil, in order to evaluate whether the higher Amerindian ancestry observed in this relatively isolated geographic region would influence the clinical presentation of SCD.

Subperiosteal Orbital Hematoma: Imaging Findings of a Rare Complication of Sickle Cell Disease: Subperiosteal orbital hematoma is a rare entity mainly seen in pediatric patients with sickle cell disease and occurs secondary to local vascular disturbances following facial bone infarction.

Sickle cell disease is the most common hemoglobinopathy. Homozygous patients are prone to vaso-occlusive crises. A 19-year-old male patient with the homozygous sickle cell trait was admitted to the hospital due to a sickle cell crisis. During his admission he developed a left periorbital edema. The diagnosis of a subperiosteal orbital hematoma (SOH) was made by CT and MRI imaging. SOH is a rare complication of a VOC. The clinical course is mostly self-resolving, with some cases reporting the need for surgic...

Pediatric to Adult Transition in Sickle Cell Disease: Survey Results from Young Adult Patients.

We surveyed sickle cell disease (SCD) patients who transitioned from pediatric care at Texas Children's Hematology Center (TCHC) to adult care to determine the characteristics of patients with an adult SCD provider, continuation rates of pre-transition therapies, and patient perceptions of the transition process.

The increased neopterin content in turkish pediatric patients with sickle cell anemia.

In the present study, the possible activation of cellular immunity in SCD patients was investigated. As immune activation parameters, neopterin concentrations and kynurenine/tryptophan ratio for tryptophan degradation in 35 pediatric patients with sickle cell disease (31 HbSS and 4 HbSß) were determined. Our results have shown that neopterin levels (both urinary and serum) are increased in pediatric patients with sickle cell disease. The increase in neopterin concentration was accompanied by significantly ...

Association of sickle cell trait with atrial fibrillation: The REGARDS cohort.

Sickle cell trait (SCT), sickle cell disease's (SCD) carrier status, has been recently associated with worse cardiovascular and renal outcomes. An increased prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is documented in SCD patients; however, studies in individuals with SCT are lacking.

Prevalence of enuresis and its impact in quality of life of patients with sickle cell disease.

Evidence indicates an increase in the prevalence of enuresis in individuals with sickle cell disease. The present study aims to evaluate the prevalence and impact of enuresis on quality of life in individuals with sickle cell disease.

The Risk of Pregnancy Related Hypertension Disorder Associated with Sickle Cell Trait in U.S. Service Women.

Splenectomy is not associated with a higher tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity in people with sickle cell anemia.

Vascular complications such as pulmonary hypertension (PH) occur at an increased rate following splenectomy in patients with various hemolytic blood disorders including thalassemia. The goal of this retrospective cross-sectional analysis was to assess the independent association of splenectomy with an elevated tricuspid regurgitation velocity (TRV) in people with homozygous sickle cell disease (HbSS). TRV is a noninvasive screening test for PH and a surrogate marker of prognosis in sickle cell disease (SCD)...

Combined genetic disruption of K-Cl cotransporters and Gardos channel KCNN4 rescues erythrocyte dehydration in the SAD mouse model of sickle cell disease.

Excessive red cell dehydration contributes to the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease (SCD). The densest fraction of sickle red cells (with the highest corpuscular hemoglobin concentration) undergoes the most rapid polymerization of deoxy-hemoglobin S, leading to accelerated cell sickling and increased susceptibility to endothelial activation, red cell adhesion, and vaso-occlusion. Increasing red cell volume in order to decrease red cell density can thus serve as an adjunct therapeutic goal in SCD. Regul...

Asthma in children with sickle cell disease.

Asthma is common in children with sickle cell disease (SCD) and appears to be associated with increased morbidity. Providers caring for children with SCD have struggled with the question of whether asthma exists as a true comorbidity or whether certain aspects of the chronic inflammatory disease gives children with SCD an asthma-like phenotype.

Decreased Bleeding Incidence with Direct Oral Anticoagulants Compared to Vitamin K Antagonist and Low-Molecular-Weight Heparin in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease and Venous Thromboembolism.
